Extra-dry skin: causes and factors
Skin dryness (or extra-dry skin) is caused by numerous environment-related factors: wind, cold, heating, extreme climatic changes (from hot to cold and vice versa). 

In addition to environement-related factors, cutaneous ageing (ageing of the skin) slows down cell renewal. This weakens the hydrolipidic film (emulsion of water (hydro) and fat (lipos) that covers the skin surface). The skin becomes dryer.

Menopaused women are more subject to extra-dry skin, as sebaceous secretions (the secretion of sebum, an oily/waxy matter that hydrates the skin) are reduced. 

The last factor leading to skin dryness, or extra-dry skin, is a lack of external moisturisation, also called cutaneous dehydration (dehydration of the skin).
